Some Solitude?

There are so many things to interrupt one’s solitude. Where was that horrible repeating little ditty coming from? From a smart phone, of course.

Smart phones weren’t the only sources of unwanted noise. There were plenty of others. Loud thumping bass kickers, from the house around the corner.

Noise pollution is everywhere these days. TV commercial soundtracks are louder than those on regular programming.

Where can a person find solitude these days? Perhaps in the deep Arctic–or on Mars?
